Former Australian Netball Captain Liz Ellis found herself part of the one-in-six couples in Australia and New Zealand affected by infertility, a road she stayed on for five years. With If At First You Don’t Conceive Liz wants to help other hopeful parents-to-be navigate these often bewildering, almost always uncomfortable and sometimes utterly devastating waters.

Drawing on interviews with specialists and couples, and covering everything medical from alternative therapies, fertility drugs, IVF, donor eggs and miscarriages to the frustration, disappointment and heartbreak that such a journey brings, this book is a must-have, friendly, and more often than not funny guide on how to try, and try again.
